Accutane and liver damage

I've heard that accutane can be harmful to your liver. I've been prescribed 60mg once a week after my 6 month course. Blood tests will be required every 2 months to check my liver function. How much of a damage can accutane inflict on my liver if I take a pill once a week for a long duration. And also, is there a way to lessen the damage to my liver? Thanks!
